Pollo Tropical is more than you think #PolloTropical #ad

You may (or not) have seen Pollo Tropical in your area. I was recently invited to visited the one on LaVista Drive in Tucker (in front of Target). While I was there, my daughter and I were able to sample some of the items on their menu as well as preview some of the items. The preview I have already posted on my instagram account (feel free to check it out). This is what my daughter and I sampled.

She had a chicken quesadilla wrap with plantain as a side.  I had the pollo bites with a side of balsamic tomatoes.  I wanted the bites so that I could sample their sauce bar.  I tried the garlic cilantro, pineapple rum, guava bbq, and spicy poyo.  Of the four, my favorite was the pineapple rum (you can taste the rum!) followed by the guava bbq.  My daughter liked the spicy.

There are some really good sides you can get, beyond what you might expect. Rice (white or brown), beans (black or red), yellow rice & veggies, sweet potato casserole, and more.  Pictured below are more plantains (very good), corn casserole, and sweet potato casserole.

Their menu includes more than just chicken, though.  I was surprised to find out that you can also get pork (ribs, roasted or shredded). Other than the location (getting in/out of that Target can be a pain), the restaurant was pretty good.  You can find more locations on their web site:

I was invited to visit and eat in exchange for my review and posts on social media.  All opinions are my own.
